Mr. Gnome Announces Spring Tour, New 7″

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

Mr. Gnome
Nicole Barille and Sam Meister — better known now as Cleveland‘s Mr. Gnome — saw the release of their album Madness In Miniature last year to some high praise, including being named Verbicide’s Top 50 Albums of 2011.

Their new digital seven-inch, Softly Mad, features two B-sides from the Madness In Miniature sessions, “The Way” and “Still Life,” both of which show a more restrained side of the band that was previously only hinted at on the album. ┬áIt will be released on March 20th on El Marko Records.

The duo will also be touring this spring, including a stop at SXSW. See below for tour dates, as well as a free MP3 download.
